Belgium will organise the first world nuclear summit in March 2024 together with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

"We are expanding two nuclear power plants, investing $100 million in innovation for SMR small reactors, and quadrupling our offshore wind power capacity," De Croo said.
In the morning, about twenty countries, including the USA, the United Arab Emirates, France and Belgium itself, called in a joint statement at COP28 to triple the world's nuclear energy capacities by 2050 compared to 2020, to reduce dependence on coal and gas, the main challenge of this summit. The announcement was made by John Kerry, US climate envoy, in Dubai, along with several leaders including French President Emmanuel Macron and Belgian Prime Minister Alexander de Croo. China and Russia, today the world's leading nuclear power plant builders, are not among the signatories.
